Tiger finishes off his kingfish before threading it onto his floatline.
A small leatherjacket hides itself in a clump of kelp in the shallows. Bushrangers Bay, Australia.
A dreamy dive
Braving drizzle and darkness on an early morning spearfishing dive we were rewarded with a group of 6 large grey nurse sharks. It was a dream to free dive next to these typically shy creatures.
On the move
One of my first photos taken under water. A crimson banded wrasse cruises through a slot in the rocky seabed. Jervis Bay, Australia.
King of his domain. The biggest cuttlefish I've ever seen! While I lay in front of him he flashed from deep purple to bright orange before retreating back into the cave.
A cuttlefish camouflages into the rocky sea bed while a large school of yellow tail cruises overhead.
The morning ritual
A lovely lady doing laps of the local ocean pool. Wollongong, Australia.
Sandra marvelling at a rare window of winter diving perfection. Wollongong, Australia.
In the open
A bright red eustacus spinifer, or yabbie as the locals call them, seeking refuge in a shallow pool away from the flood waters. Blue Mountains, Australia.
A white nudibranch slinks out onto the kelp. While I struggled to keep still in the swell, this guy didn't seem phased in the slightest.
Casey practising his dynamic no fins technique in the local pool. Can't complain about 50m vis and 28 degree water!
Sandra gliding through one of the local cave systems on the prowl for good light and monster lobsters.
Not all heroes wear capes, but some do wear masks. Casey drops in behind and Sandra cuts free the tangled ropes and fishing line during an awesome cleanup effort by the Wollongong Freedivers.
Due to constant rainfall the top few metres of water in Milford Sound are fresh water. This hazy layer cuts down light and makes spotting fish from the surface extremely difficult. Not an issue for John though, who pulled up a blue cod on his first drop.
